Life Can Come From the Negative Side of a Story
From a well know screen writer's view related to the most important and least understood precept in story design:
"A protagonist and his story can only be as intellectually fascinating and emotionally compelling as the forces of antagonism make them".
What will cause a protagonist to become a fully realized, multidimensional, and deeply empathetic character? What will bring his story to Life?
The answer to both questions lies on the negative side of the story...." -Robert McKee
